to be able to really luxuriate in the crunchiness!
Subject: vanishing review
I had to post a review because it seems that the reviews always end up in the twilight zone! Seriously, I have read several reviews of this recording but somehow I am now the "first to review this show!?!?!?!" (cue twilight zone theme).
As for it - this is an interesting one-time listening, some fun spacey stuff and one cohesive jam (the longest track, I believe). Just another example of how scrutenized this band was (is).
When are the Jerry singing in the shower tapes going to come out?

I can see the New Speedway jam connection but I also hear the Truckin' Outro / Nobody's Fault jam there aw well. Basically the same jam anyway. Great stuff with a clear sound. Cassette hiss is present but not at all intrusive. A nice little addition to your 1985 section of the Only Ones Who Do What They Do Band.

Track 4 sounds like a New Speedway jam. Great stuff! Thanks Charlie.

I watched the Twilight Zone looking for the music credits and never found them, so even tho I knew the GD recorded music for the newer 80's version of the teevee show I don't know if I ever actually heard the music.
Yours truly is one of those sick twisted freaks who likes space, feedback and Seastones kind of stuff. It's not as easy to play as it sounds and tho it's supposedly freeform there is a lot more unintentional direction in it than one might imagine.
Track 4 is a regular jam. Now I'm sure I never heard this on the show. The producers probably didn't use it. Track 5 sounds like the makings for a perfectly good Jerry easy rocker.
Track 6 goes back into space. Yes, Twilight Zone music is supposed to sound weird and conjure the world of demons or disjunct thinking in a person's mind. Nun the Less, to me, a one who laughs at the macabre, this music is very soothing to me.
I know, I know, I'm weird. I'm weird for Dead Heads!
This effort deserves 5 stars just because of its historic value.
This reviewer rarely gives anything less than 5 stars for any GD performance on the Archives ~ which reminds me...
